Susan Laine

I'm a Finnish gal. I'm an anthropologist by education and a LGBTQ+ erotic romance author by vocation. I write for Dreamspinner Press, Siren Publishing, DSP Publications, and Evernight Publishing.

My interests include action flicks, saunas, and cowboys — in no particular order. Murder mysteries are my favorite reading material when I'm not delving into another M/M or F/F romance.

In addition to my published works, I also have three free reads: Tempus Fugit is available at Goodreads and my website; Sheriff's Dawn can be read on ManLove Authors; and Lanterns of Love can be read at Dreamspinner Press's Blog.

More of gay goodness is coming out soon: Tradeoff in May 2017 by Siren Publishing, and An Island in the Stars in June 2017 by Dreamspinner Press, respectively.

For more detailed info on each of my titles, check out my website.

I come from a long line of strong women, and thus while I appreciate the power of women, I love to write about gorgeous men — who love other gorgeous men.
